"Online" is a song co-written and performed by American country music artist Brad Paisley.It was released in July 2007 as the second single from the album 5th Gear.The single is Paisley's ninth overall Number One single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, as well as his fifth consecutive Number One.In addition, the song's music video won a Video of the Year award for Paisley at the 2007 Country Music Association awards.Paisley wrote this song with Kelley Lovelace and Chris Du Bois."Online" is a moderate up-tempo song whose lyrics satirize the online world, specifically My Space.Here, the song's protagonist is a geek who lives at home with his parents, holds a job at the local Pizza Pitt pizzeria, and claims limited success in the dating world.



Later in the song, he claims to live in Malibu, California, have a sexy, finely sculptured body, and pose for Calvin Klein Inc. The fictitious alternate personalities make the geek claim that he is "so much cooler online".The album version of the song ends with a marching band playing the melody of the chorus, a reference to an earlier line where the protagonist claims to play tuba in a marching band. Coyne of Country Universe gave the song an F rating.He considered the song a form of bullying because of the contrast between Paisley's superstar status and the unpopularity of the character in the song.Coyne added, "[W]hat Brad is doing here isn’t comedy.

It’s sport." Allmusic critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine described the song more favorably in his review of 5th Gear, saying, "[It's] an obvious joke that comes just a bit too close to bullying, but he saves himself with his smarts — not just verbal[…] but musical, as he ends it with a marching band that delivers an aural punchline set up by the words." The music video is directed by actor Jason Alexander, who also plays the geek in the song's music video; William Shatner and Estelle Harris play his parents.

Patrick Warburton has a cameo as a car dealer, Shane West has a cameo as a photographer, and Maureen Mc Cormick is featured as the geek's next door neighbor. The father then acts hurt, a tongue-in-cheek reference to William Shatner's own long-mocked music career.
